Cameroon residents to stage protest

2011-04-19 10:31

Pretoria - An organisation representing Cameroon nationals based in South Africa was planning to march to their embassy in Pretoria on Tuesday morning to protest against President Paul Biya.

"[We want] to say 'no' to President Paul Biya's 29 years of rapping the people's constitution, resources [and] instituting corruption as a way of life," the Enough, Biya Must Go Campaign organisers said.

"[We want to say no to] eroding the moral fabric of the society, making favouritism [and] nepotism a norm, and perpetuating his rule by constantly changing the constitution, especially with respect to term limits amongst many and rigging elections with impunity," the group said.

The protest was scheduled to take place at the High Commission of Cameroon on Brooklyn, Pretoria, from 09:00.

Biya and his Cameroon People's Democratic Movement have been in power since 1982.
